This is the world’s most advanced self-driving car. The SYMBIOZ is a concept car by Renault. It embodies what they believe cars will be like in 2030. The concept car has achieved level 4 autonomy. This means the driver doesn’t need to pay attention to the road or touch the steering wheel. For comparison, Tesla’s operate at level 2.
A level 4 car can change lanes on its own, exit the highway, regulate its speed based on speed limit and traffic, or pull over to a safe place if the driver can’t take over control. Entertainment features make the autonomous ride more enjoyable. Cinema-quality screens with the ability to stream movies while in self-driving mode, high-end audio system, virtual reality.
